Our world is now facing a major environmental crisis, one that affects every country on every continent. Climate change is now not only disrupting national economies, but also affecting lives, costing people, communities and countries greatly today, and even more tomorrow. It is for this reason that it is necessary to encourage “affordable, scalable solutions to enable countries to leapfrog to cleaner, more resilient economies”.
